I went to the Moto cross event today as I wanted to try the AFC tracking on the XT2 with both the 100-400 and the 16-55 and I used the following settings:

ISO = Auto
Zone Focus = 9 central spots then wide tracking
AFC category = I used setting 4 (subject suddenly appears)
100 - 400 set to f8 and 1/2000 sec
The above were for most of the images but used f5.6 with the 16-55mm

I am thrilled with the performance and it more than lived up to all my expectations and the only focus fails were down to operator headspace!

These are just a few of the images

Nice! These would have been difficult with the X-T1.


Which setting did you find more useful? Zone or wide/tracking?

Thank you both, I used Zone when shooting at a distance with the 100-400 and when close up with the 16-55 I used wide/tracking. In both cases the focus was fast and accurate.


I did have the AFC setting on N0.4 (Subject suddenly appears) and some of the bikes could bot be seen until they were in the air in front of me but the AFC picked them up without issue.
